TRUE WEB-BASED LABEL PRINTING SOLUTION THAT SUPPORTS CENTRALIZED ONLINE LABEL PRINTING

Euro Plus, a recognized innovation leader in AIDC solutions, proudly announces the availability of NiceLabel Portal – a true Web-based label printing solution that supports centralized online label printing. Abandoning desktop printing applications and distributing the labeling process online ensure consistent and dependable formats of all labels in the enterprise environment.

The inspiration for the product came from a manufacturer in the aerospace industry who desperately needs every item they handle properly marked from the moment they receive it to the day it's shipped to the customer. Any part without identification needs to be thrown away.
“This customer of ours was proud of how they managed marking within their facilities with NiceLabel products. They were frustrated as they could not convince their suppliers to do the same,” recalled Marko Vrbnjak, NiceLabel Product Manager.

Talking to existing customers and partners to piece together a solution for such cases, it was soon identified that supplier labeling was a major pain point in much of the retail and manufacturing markets. Increasingly, interviews and meetings ended with a wishful idea of the equivalent of the popular NiceForm application which would require only a Web browser to run.

"We had a successful desktop product and, we had the technology that allowed printing over the internet, but required programming. Looking back, it seemed logical to put the two technologies together," said Andrej Zrimšek, R&D director at Euro Plus.

Marko added: "The simplicity of this solution never ceases to amaze me. More importantly, it amazes the customers and partners."

NiceLabel Portal allows the user to simply click a Web link and print a label. There is no need for a desktop installation, studying standards and label requirements, using a sophisticated designer interface to print, etc. The simplicity of the process is what drives supplier compliance, and when it's easier for a vendor to print a new label than to resist changing his routine, the ground work for a highly efficient system is set.

"I'm proud that our team again proved that costly and difficult challenges can be faced with very elegant solutions," concluded Matej Košmrlj, the managing director at Euro Plus.
